Thanks for all those links, but I was really looking for a third-party analysis of my situation. God knows how much time I spent analyzing my own chart, and rather than do more individual analysis, I believe it's time for somebody else to give me some sort of an answer.
Hi Ray, I don't think using a horary chart in the case of my question is a good idea. If the answer is "No, you won't get into medical school" when I ask the question today, and then it's "Yes" a week from now, that sounds very ridiculous, doesn't it? I don't believe that horary astrology applies to my situation.
I don't think horary is a good idea, too many variables make it unreliable.Dear Astrologers:
I have officially begun the journey of applying to medical school. I will begin studying for the admissions test this summer, and I'll take it next summer.
I have attached my progressed chart and a chart showing my natal and transits for October 2012, the time when I should be hearing back from the schools.
Do these charts show any indication at all of being accepted? PLEASE let me know! Is there some sort of assurance written in my chart that I will get a Yes?
Thank you so much!!!
There's not too many variables if the question is kept straightforward. It's a yes/no answer. Looking at multiple transits for the next 2-3 years involves far more variation.
It's been almost always right for me.Possibly, I still think in general horary is unreliable. I have seen it to be incorrect too many times.
If it's something they really care about and desire, I don't think so but I haven't done horaries that far out; transits are too open to interpretation to give a concrete answer, in my opinion.Maybe doing horary now for a question 2-3 years later is premature.
Sigh .. it's not a debate. People should be allowed to share views without it being seen as a "debate"--no need to add "Right, ray", which some might interpret as sarcastic. I was giving you a suggestion for a more efficient way to find your answer, if you don't want to do it that way, that's perfectly fine--no loss to me.I agree with you about horary, Vista. I don't think it's reliable either. But enough on the whole debate about horary's effectiveness lol. That should be saved for the horary forum, not here (right, Ray?) .
That's completely off, just so you know.To me, horary is just like consulting tarot cards. "Will I have any cavities next week at the dentist" is something that horary or tarot can answer, not "will I get into medical school in two years".
Good. I hope they can help you with your question; I think writing about it as you intend is the best way to learn too.I've got a great book on transits, and I'm going to make another post later on about their meanings and how they apply to me.
SO, if you know all this and are SO confident why are you asking us for confirmation??In fact, let me start with one of the transits above, and I'll describe what my plans will be while that transit is occurring. And I'm quoting this from Robert Hand's "Planets in Transit":
Tr. Pluto sextile natal Jupiter in 11th House: June 2011 to Dec. 2011
"At this time you may have several chances to get ahead in whatever you're trying to do. This transit favors business and professional interests as well as any other enterprise that involves working with others in groups. [I PLAN ON VOLUNTEERING AT LOCAL HOSPITALS DURING THIS TIME!]
On a philosophical level also, you will be more idealistic. You are attracted to large systems of thought that explain the society or even the universe as a whole. Consequently, this is an excellent time to study law, religion, philosophy, or even MEDICINE. Pluto's general concern with healing and regeneration, combined with the nurturing aspect of Jupiter, makes this a good time for the study of healing in any form. [I'LL BE STUDYING FOR THE ADMISSIONS TEST DURING THIS PERIOD! SEE?]
On a more mundane level, this is an excellent time for any dealings with the law or with authorities [DOCTORS?]. At work, your relationships with employers will probably be quite good, and they will be of greater assistance than usual. [HOPEFULLY, THIS BODES WELL FOR WHEN I HAVE TO ASK DOCTORS IF I CAN OBSERVE THEM IN PRACTICE!]
I swear, it's amazing how I suddenly made the decision to go head-on into pursuing medicine, and transits like these are/will be happening. I had no previous knowledge about this!
Now pluto conj MC suggestsSaturn in Conjunction Midheaven You're a diligent worker and others feel that you can be counted upon to deliver what you promise. Your rise to the peak of your career may not happen overnight, but Saturn always rewards a job well done when the time is right. Step by step is the key here. Suitable career options may include: politician, government worker, manager, accountant, corporate executive, construction and building worker, chiropractor, doctor, or dentist. Wherever precision combines with form, or reliable leadership qualities can be brought into play, you have a career possibility.
Pluto is all about control and where you want it most. As you can see/read, it has a multitude of examples where pluto can operate including surgery - but there are many othersPluto in Conjunction, Trine, Sextile to Midheaven Expect some major shifts in the area of career. You can rise to a position of great influence and then completely change direction at some point.
Pluto is conducive to uncovering that which has been hidden. Its action is rejuvenating. Anything which has been laid to rest can be recycled to begin anew. Consider some of the following career potentials: archaeology, espionage, psychiatry, mortuary science, the secret service, banking, or the medical profession--especially surgery.
My way of helping newcomers is for them to do more research and learning rather than just ‘drop the answer in your lap’ and not necessarily to provide professional readings and forecast future events. If you are truly interested in astrology, I and most others here will help you…..Thanks for all those links, but I was really looking for a third-party analysis of my situation.

Now having said T Jupiter going through 9th house *can suggest* higher education there are *NO guarantees*What in my chart makes you think that I'm set up to be in medicine, Vista? Just curious...I want to see if what I'm thinking matches up with yours.
Node doesn't bring luck per se, it's the person *life lessons* and directions for learning this time around.student4life,
is in the 6th house= health profession, so it brings some luck and ease to that area.
All depends on which house system you work with. I use Equal house and this aries moon would be 4th house. I also have Aries 29' moon badly aspected and in 3rd house conj 4cusp. I have never been influenced by family, have no relationship with siblings at all. Never changes schools and never have emotional outbursts.. I also have a stellium in taurus in 4th house and therefore work from home. Aries moon is not in my opinion 'emotionally aggresive' but agree with will intiate matters.....in 3rd house = very close with siblings, can be easily influenced by family, can have the tendency to change schools or start and stop frequently, the Aries influence on the emotions can make you more susceptible to volatile emotional outbursts, but it is 29 degrees so it should be tempered by the Taurus by now. The Aries is emotionally aggressive and initiative, where as the Taurus is more stable and expressive. (did you catch all that? )
Hi P.D., your getting some good feedback to your question, so I'm tempted not to answer you, but there is something that I would like to point out. Your natal has 2 grand trines yes?, ....grand trines have a negative side to them just as planets and signs do! Those squares and oppositions in our charts are very beneficial in the long run, although we whine and complain about them to ourselves they help (or "force") us to build character and some tenacity, you know the saying "When the going gets tough"! Grand trines are more likely to allow us to fold when under pressure, because we are used to gliding through life without really trying that hard. Did you know that in the past (in some countries)a doctor had to learn medical astrology to pass the medical boards requirements to be registered as a doctor? Maybe thats where you're supposed to head, pluto transiting your ascendant should clear up just where you are going to go, I mean who do you want to be in the near future, a doctor who uses ground breaking (for our time) techniques to be one of the best ever, or "just another med school dropout?
You have the ability to do this, and wether you do it or not your still going to go through some depressing times, as those of us with saturn strong in our charts do! Thats the trade off, serious study, not much leo sunshine and a certificate that will give you not only endless pleasure when reflected upon, but also the lasting satisfaction that a unique contribution to mankind brings! (money can't buy that).
Saturn conj MC (which I also have) WILL delay any kind of success until midlife - if at all.
Now pluto conj MC suggests
Pluto is all about control and where you want it most. As you can see/read, it has a multitude of examples where pluto can operate including surgery - but there are many others
Having sun, mercury in 9th house (Equal house) would make a good teacher, lawyer and lots of other things as well
Also having Jupiter/Uranus conj in 11th also conj 12th house cusp suggests, working behind the scenes/in isolation, which many careers would do including surgeons
